You are welcome to come by anytime, but be sure to wear some clothes you dont care about. You might find your self getting handed a wrench, or a sander, or some other tool.

Here are the pictures for the rebuilt master, and the new brake / fuel lines from last weekend.












prep work for the patch panel












And I took my 78 F250 for its first long drive, 20+ mile round trip to work and to the Friday night Cruise in Cumberland RI.

We had a productive couple of weekends.

Here is the progress!


Last door hem patch welded, ground and ready to go.






Being a crew cab I needed to install another dome light bracket, so while recycling the old front to rear roof brackets from my two cabs I installed the second dome light bracket from the original cab. Flattend it, chopped up the bows, and braced everything gotether.







We had some rot to contend with on the front drip rail/roof area.







All patched up using a patch from the donor second cab.











Mudded and ready for primer.




primed!!!!

I had to patch up a hole on one side of my '73 cab on the roof near the rain gutter. It took a bit of fiddling around for me to get it looking good enough. Your roof looks great! Keep the posts coming. This is a very unique build.
